Scalars, Shift Symmetries and de Sitter
  OKC - Theory Working Group

Thursday 23 May 2019
from 13:15 to 14:15
at A5: 1041 (Cops seminar room)
Speaker : Rachel Rosen (Columbia University)
Abstract : In flat spacetime, a number of “special” scalar field theories have been identified which possess shift symmetries, non-renormalization theorems and enhanced soft limits.  In this talk I’ll present the construction of the de Sitter analogues of these theories and I’ll discuss their curious properties.  I’ll also discuss the generalization to higher spin.
